PILLBOX STANDARD & PRO SERIES
Why modern bats?
After busting our butts for a few years making vintage styles and artist series bats we've begun the craft of making modern styles and we think we have a few tricks up our sleeves to make a top-notch bat. A bat that we'd be proud to put the Pillbox name to and a bat that we'd be confident putting in a players capable hands. We come with the woodworking experience and know-how to push the envelope on wooden bat production.
We're still very much in the testing and fine-tuning phase of the craft - taking the slow approach to launching.
Fall 2018: Testing/Research
We're spending the fall honing our craft and testing out bats.
February/March: Kickstarter Launch
We want to do this thing right - no half-hearted attempt to make some bats for kicks and giggles. We're throwing our hat into the ring with the big boys of the bat industry. To make that happen we need to invest in some big equipment(lathe, laser engraver, etc.). That's where the kickstarter will come in to help fund that project. And it will be the first opportunity for most of you to put your hands on a Pillbox Standard & Pro Series bat. More info to come...
We're shooting to wrap up the kickstarter project and launch these beauties to the public. More info to come...
We don't have much to share at the moment. What we will share is that each and every bat will adhere to the Pillbox standard of quality and design. We're busy analyzing and over-analyzing every detail of the bat-making process - from the lumber we use to the products and practices that go into making each bat. So that when we're ready a Pillbox bat will be among the best of the best out there!
